Phuket is often listed as one of the top 10 dive sites in the World. Even if they were severely hit by the Tsunami in 2004, the coral reefs of Phuket and nearby islands are simply breathtaking. Clown fishes, leopard sharks, giant sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks: here are just a few of the numerous species that you can possibly meet when diving in Phuket.

Diving in Phuket is very easy because there are many PADI certified diving centers. Divemasters and instructors are available to children and adult and it will be very easy to find one speaking your mother tongue. Beginners are always welcome for an introduction to open water diving, and will be able to discover the thrilling pleasure of underwater discovery without the need of a license.

Diving around Phuket is divided into two main areas:

First, the Similan islands, Koh Bon and Richelieu Islands. They are located approximately 100km northwest of Phuket. This area is a National Park used to preserve many species from overfishing, and is protected by the government, therefore it is only opened during high season (between October and May). Some beaches are strictly prohibited to visitors as turtles come there to lay their eggs. The place consists of nine beautiful islands whose main attraction is the rich variety of fauna and aquatic flora.

The other area to do scuba-diving in Phuket is composed of several sites in the south and east of Phuket. Amongst the most well-known and prestigious, let’s mention Shark Point, King Cruiser (a shipwreck only 25 meters deep), Racha Yai and Noi, or Anemon Reef. All of these sites are open all year and are available just one hour by boat from Phuket. The proximity of all these beautiful diving sites is a key for great holidays for those who are in Phuket to enjoy scuba-diving.
